IPL 2021: Rahul Chahar Is Our Wicket-Taking Bowler Says MI Bowling Coach Shane Bond
Mumbai Indians bowling coach Shane Bond has termed leg-spinner Rahul Chahar as a wicket-taking bowler. The 21-year-old picked four wickets for 27 runs against Kolkata Knight Riders as he ran through their top-order, dismissing the first four batsmen including captain Eoin Morgan and opener Shubman Gill.
Mumbai Indians, who have a top-level pace battery, featuring the likes of Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult, are looking to use Chahar as a wicket-taking option.
"Rahul's (Chahar) a wicket-taking bowler. You make him bowl those balls that are too good. His role is to come into the middle and spin the ball and create some pressure and take wickets. That is the role we look to make him do," said Mumbai Indians bowling coach Shane Bond while answering questions from the media.
Chahar, who represents Rajasthan in domestic cricket, has been a member of the Mumbai Indians team and has got into the habit of winning.
